Alternative formats to Android device

First off, thanks so much for adding Infuse driver to the latest update!

I was wondering if it is possible to send mobis via "Send to device" so that I can use kindle app to read them; the driver only allows transfer of pdf/epub to my Infuse (maybe to all android devices?). Since I have a kindle, I tend to keep my collection in mobi, and the recommended MobileRead app is not particularly friendly to adding a large number of books--adding from SD card manually does not seem to allow bulk import of any kind, so if I wanted to add the ~400 ebooks I own I would be doing a lot of tapping. This is distinctly unappealing, not to mention the fact that maintaining two formats of every book, while very easy in calibre, is also potentially tedious. And of course using "Save to disk" option is suboptimal as well, when I feel like a one-click solution should be within arm's reach.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

The driver allows you to send whatever files you want to send and to the directory you want them to go to, see attached. Go to Preferences - Plugins - Device interface plugin - Android driver and customize it.

Thanks, I didn't find that option page--hopefully some people agree with me that it's a bit tough when things are buried in the long list of plugins. Not that I have any great ideas for improving discoverability of the options, so I guess I'll just stick to sounding like a moron on the forums.

Thanks again!
